My name is Alexandra Timmins. I am delighted to be starting my second year at St. Mary as the full-time PreK 3 teacher and part time Reading Resource teacher. The 2022-2023 school year marks my 13th year in the Archdiocese of Chicago. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Western Illinois University. After starting my career in early childhood, I decided to go back to school and pursue my Masters Degree. I wanted to expand my knowledge and continue to grow as an educator in the early childhood field. I received my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University. Outside of the classroom, I like to spend time with my husband, our dog Clarke, family, and friends. Preschool is a delightful time for your little one and I am excited to be part of your child’s education. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
